Imagine celebrating your wedding in a venue that has witnessed the grandeur of history, from the medieval knights to the celebrated figures of the Renaissance. One of the four Inns of Court, The Inner Temple dates back to the 12th century. Originally established by the Knights Templar, this historic site has been a place of significance for centuries. The Inner Temple Garden was the original home of the Royal Horticultural Show from 1888 to 1911 before it moved to Chelsea. During WWII, the gardens were transformed into allotments and a repository for Blitz rubble, adding to the rich legacy of this remarkable venue.

Whether you envision a formal affair or a relaxed gathering, the Inn offers versatile spaces to suit your needs. The Hall, with its soaring ceilings, sparkling chandeliers, historic paintings, and stunning stained-glass windows, can accommodate up to 255 guests for a civil ceremony and 240 for a seated dinner. The Parliament Chamber can host up to 150 guests for ceremonies and up to 90 for dining. Then there is the beautifully manicured garden, licensed for ceremonies, which can accommodate up to 200 guests. With the civil ceremony license, you can legally wed and celebrate in one stunning location.

Experienced event managers will work closely with you to ensure every detail is meticulously planned and executed. Renowned for exquisite dishes, the in-house catering team uses the finest locally sourced, seasonal ingredients to create a menu reflecting your tastes. Whether you desire a traditional wedding breakfast, a sumptuous banquet, or a stylish cocktail reception, the culinary team will provide an unforgettable dining experience.

The Inner Temple is not just a venue; it is a place where history and culture intersect. William Shakespeare performed here, and the venue has been a part of the lives of many notable historical figures. Sir Francis Drake, the famous explorer, and Sir Edward Coke, a prominent jurist, have all walked its halls. The Inn is part of the Temples Conservation Area and contains one of the largest concentrations of Grade I-listed buildings in London. It was also here that the tensions leading to the Wars of the Roses first began to simmer. Your wedding will be part of a living history, creating a new chapter in the legacy of this extraordinary place.

Located between Temple and Blackfriars, the Inn is easily accessible. The stunning surroundings provide countless opportunities for breathtaking wedding photographs, from the iconic garden with its views over the Thames to the historic cobblestone pathways.
